. lindsey graham said the truth will never come out about that night if petraeus keeps quiet forever. >> you can't get to the bottom of benghazi without him testifying. i want to hear from gen. petraeus what he knew before, during and after the attack and there's no substitute for his testimony, in my view. >> paula broadwell emerged from her brother's northwest washington home yesterday. and in a strange bits, the twist with the other strange details, mrs. broadwell's north carolina driver's license was found by a jogger in rock creek park monday and authorities say they have no idea how long it had been there. >> thank you very much. i see one of the tabloids here is referring to this as real house lives of sitcom. >> but there are many unanswered questions. why is the white house and eric holder potentially getting a pass in all of this? it came out a few days ago that eric holder, the attorney general of this country, knew that the fbi was investigating the director of the cia but apparently as close a friend as he is of obama, he never told obama until two days after the election. do yo
